This is why Obama gets away with what he does
By Sylvia Thompson

As a conservative black American who ignores the concept of "self-muzzling" (translated "political correctness"), I have been asked several times why it is that Barack Obama and Eric Holder can do the unlawful, unjust things that they are doing. People who ask me this are Caucasian Americans. I reply in all instances that these men are lawless because white people allow them to be lawless. There are not enough conservative blacks who oppose the Obama regime to make much of a difference. In fact, there are not enough blacks in America (if we all opposed them) to stop these men.

I focus on these two, because they are the chief law officials in this country. The power that they wield over American citizens is tremendous. They set the tone for legality or illegality, and they have chosen the latter. They set the tone for racial harmony or disharmony, and they have chosen the latter.

That being the case, if white Americans continue to run scared at the sound of the term "racist," these two will continue on their paths of destroying the country. I am convinced that Obama was groomed for politics by the Left for the reason that he could be used as an object of "racism." (The Left, in this instance, being the conglomerate of powerful progressive, background players who manipulate politics to their benefit.) These controlling entities must have known that Obama was ill-equipped for the task of leading a great nation and would eventually be exposed as ill-equipped. When that eventuality happened, the race card would be the strategy used to scare off white folks. And so far, the scheme is working.

I do not think that a majority of Americans support the Obama regime or the Left and its liberal, godless ideology. The leaders of the supposed opposition to the liberal Left, however, are very weak. Those leaders are running scared from the charge of "racist," and they have, effectively, left conservative America without oppositional political leadership. That is not to say that conservatives have no strong, out-spoken supporters of conservatism, it is just that these spokespeople are not in power. Elitist Republicans, who are in power, are as much a hindrance to conservatives as are their liberal foes.

In a similar vein, I have heard conservatives decry the moral and spiritual decline of our country. They say that it is difficult to see how we could have degenerated so far in so short a time. One commentator voiced confusion over how the same nation could have elected a George W. Bush twice (notwithstanding the flaws in Bush's conservatism) and someone like Barack Obama twice.

The explanation for that confusion comes from facts that many conservatives, especially leaders, are not willing to face. Obama's first election was predicated on a host of lies and media propaganda. Crucial information about him was covered over and hidden. He won the second time because four million Republicans (many of them conservatives) stayed home. Those voters knew that the Libertarian-influenced Republican leadership despised them as values voters and believers in God's role in this country's successes. They simply reached their wits' end at being used in the same way that the Democrats use blacks and other minorities. So they stayed home. And I think they will continue to avoid the establishment Republicans' choices of feckless, non-conservative, non-fighter candidates.

Until my Caucasian fellow Americans wake up to this reality – that Obama does what he does because they allow him to – they will continue to be victimized. The nation will continue to be victimized.
